Yesterday, Elena Miro finally unveiled the works of the 26 semifinalists in the company's "Morbidamente Donna" art contest, and announced the names of the three finalists--Barbara Bonfilio, Federica De Santi, and Carlo Roccazzella.

Most of the entries are heavily modern (and rather risque, so some readers may wish to give the link a pass), but many of the artworks are worth at least a passing glance, especially considering the fact that they were submitted by members of the general public, and not necessarily by professional artists. Piero Salustri's work displays the finest command of technique, while Oscar Alitta's entry shows the influence of late Renoir. (For some reason, Mr. Roccazzella's winning artwork is not included among these 26 semifinalists.)

Whatever one thinks of the quality of these works, we applaud the concept of the art competition in the first place. Like Addition-Elle's "Make a Statement" campaign, it encouraged public involvement in size celebration--which is entirely a good thing.

In the final analysis, however, many aficionados will undoubtedly conclude that Elena Miro's greatest contributions to the aesthetic restoration remain the company's brilliant advertising campaigns, which bring timeless beauty to life in the modern world.
